For those of you who have never been to San Jose, CA, Terminal C [built in the mid 1960s] there has one of the few [only????] open air observation decks left in the United States. Currently, SJC officials are planning a new terminal to replace the venerable Terminal C and I'm suspect they're not considering an observation deck. I went to the SJC web site http://www.sjc.org
and sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting that they please remember to incorporate an outdoor observation deck in the new terminal.
The response I got was:
Thank you for your suggestion. We are currently in the process of
designing the new airport facilities--Phase One (the North Concourse Project) is set to break ground this Fall! I will be sure to pass along your
suggestion to those working on the project for the design of the future phases. If you
would like to find out more about the Airport Improvement Program,
please visit our web site at http://www.sjc.org/improve.html
Thank you again for your suggestion!

I urge everyone to write to SJC and tell them to build an observation deck in the new terminal.

I travel to SJC every year from Texas and love to spot there every chance I get while Im here in CA then my parents make me come back home If they wreck the observation deck and don't build a new one ill only have 1 place left to spot and its not much of a view so yeah um and Psa188. Where is this observation deck. I live in San Jose, never new about it well here is the web site http://www.sjc.org/inside/termc.html slide your mouse over the 6th icon it will show the observation deck on the map keys it a little interactive map you will see.

When I'm in SJC, I'm on UA. I'm quite familiar with "C". I like the airstairs since I don't get a chance to do that anywhere else. However, the terminal itself is a pit and needs to be replaced badly. If they don't do the observation deck, it's the parking garage for me!
